Although the safety profile isn't complete for the 2011 Volkswagen CC, it offers some very positive indicators for the safety-conscious, including all the safety features that are expected in this class—plus a few more.

Side and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes are all standard in the CC, and rear side bags, a feature not always offered in this class, are optional.

On the down side, visibility in the CC is downright poor—nearly as much as in some low-slung sports cars—and the steeply raked windshield and backlight provide a rather narrow slit through which to view the world. Front and rear parking aids are optional.

Altogether, the crash-test information that's out there is good. While the CC hasn't been tested in the federal government's revised NCAP system that's being introduced for 2011, under the old tests it rated four of five stars in the frontal driver, frontal passenger, and side rear passenger categories, while it manages five stars for its side driver crash protection. More importantly, the IIHS gives the current 2011 CC top 'good' ratings in frontal, side, and rear impact areas.

Conclusion

Outward visibility can be an issue with the curvy body and thick pillars of the CC, but strong safety equipment and good test scores paint a secure impression.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
